- “Somehow, Princess Peach always seems to go at her own pace. Her Final Smash will lure you into her world.... The flowers bloom. The peaches pour down. Yes. It’s so elegant.”
- —Masahiro Sakurai, Smash Bros. DOJO!!
Peach Blossom is Princess Peach's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The princess has a unique blend of offensive and defensive maneuvers in battle. This tactic allows her to gain an edge over her opponents either by attacking them or restoring her own health. Decorative hearts flutter around her and a decorative "border" featuring blossoming peach trees and two images of Princess Peach adorns the area around her. As Peach dances in a spotlight to a sped-up version of the music played in Coin Heavens, Sky Land, and the Warp Zone from Super Mario Bros. 3, peaches fall from the sky, and all of her opponents fall into a deep Sleep and take damage. The closer an enemy is to Peach, the longer they will remain asleep and the more damage they will take. Typical damage ranges from 10% to 40%. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Peach summons thirteen small peaches (which heal 5% each), but in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, she summons three large peaches (which heal 20% each).
While her foes sleep, Peach can restore her health by eating the peaches and/or use any attack on her sleeping opponents. Once Peach attacks an enemy, they will immediately awaken and have a chance to recover. Her opponents will have the chance to eat her peaches if she does not do so first. If the peaches aren't eaten in a certain amount of time, they will eventually disappear. Additionally, should Peach use her Final Smash again while there are peaches still remaining, those peaches will disappear and be replaced with the new ones. Enemies can also avoid the Final Smash if they can fly and remain airborne and if others have good recovery until Peach finishes dancing. These techniques prevent a character from taking damage, and avoiding the Final Smash makes it easier for Peach's opponents to eat her peaches that appear. The Final Smash has a limited, albeit extremely large range.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Daisy has a similar move called Daisy Blossom. The attack is functionally identical to Peach Blossom, but has daisies falling down from the sky instead of peaches.
Peach Blossom is an original attack in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Visually, the attack is reminiscent of the sugar-sweet art style of Peach's first solo adventure, Super Princess Peach. It is also a representation of Peach's flighty, yet elegant personality.

- The Super Smash Bros. Brawl Premiere Edition Guide states that Peach's Final Smash puts enemies to sleep while inflicting no damage. This is incorrect, as they do take damage.
